    because its a quiet night I thought id pose this trivia.

    its a three man team round robin battle of the generations

    the 60's Anand Gelfand and Ivanchuck
    the 70's Topalov Kramnick and Shirov
    the 80's Aronian Rajabov and Grishchuk
    the 90's Carlsen, Karjakin and Vachier Largarve.

    Id take the 60's , age over beauty and time.

    Just interested, can you dig up for me a nice Gelfand game? I have yet to see one.

    Nice, thank you. 22. Bxf7+ followed by Rd7 is quite pretty:



    Can someone deliver us one of the best games of Karjakin as well?
